    Ups, I made a mistake: foulmire is uncommon

    Perhaps less interesting, but true love’s kiss (better than forsake the worldly I think), silverflame ritual (anthem is quite powerfull with all those 1/1 tokens white got)

    Foulmire knight - I feel 1/1 deathtouch for 1 is fairly good in multiplayer snd the option for cantripping it pulls it over for me. It is fairly clearly more powerfull than rager (1/1 deathtouch>>2/2 and the difference is worth 1 mana ecspecially when you can pay over 2 turns)
    (outside flickering, but I would pick tome raider for that)

    The fact it limits the cost to your availble lands matters alot.

    Seriously, 1/1 haste + strong evasive ability (for 1 mana each use) is a 1 drop artifact nowadays? Wow!

    I do welcome the ability to answer other permanent types in the colors that can't, that's an outdated color pie ideal that makes the game worse.

    I just wish they would add it for red, the color they seem to hate the most.

    haphazard bombardment remains one of the worst designs they've ever printed, they went out of their way to NOT give red a flavorful way to destroy enchantments.

    Red has Capricious Efreet which is not too bad at it (it can even be sure if you target one permanent of yours and one of someone else and sac yours or similar in response)

    It is one of those cards that are better in duals. Half the time you will choose yourself.

    To the poster above: note that you may cast the copy.

    Yes, he would have to pay 1 more. Isochron scepter is one of the rare cards where you cast a copy of a spell. Well, formally speaking he could also activate the scepter and then choose not to cast the counter spell, in which case he would not have to pay.

    In the future, please post in the rules forum for rules questions and use links when you mention a card (click the small card back icon over the area you write in).

    Have you considered isochron scepter?

    At one point... Gaea's Skyfolk was considered well over the curve.

    Skyknight Legionnaire is still decent in boros!

    If you are in multiplayer in not-green, weathered wayfarer should be active nearly all the time. I play it a lot in duels and typically it will win on ca alone if left unanswered, even if I am going first and even if I do not get it turn 1 (admittedly, I often end up building around land tutoring, so it should perhaps not be too surprising), because of fetchlands and similar.

    I like Selfless Spirit in this sort of deck. It stops wraths in a quite devastating way.

    Also, perhaps weathered wayfarer - the card is stupid in multiplayer and can, using fetch lands, be very good in duals as well.

    Mother of runes is also a great hate bear.

    Have you looked at the death and taxes legacy deck? It is in essence mono-white hate bears.dec and some lists may have some other suggestions.

    Aether vial is a common card in hate bear decks.

    I do not like Geist of Saint Traft too much, since he does not do anything except on offense and he dies too easily there (from my pov).

    I will not recommend cards from the new set since I am sure you are on top of that.

    Wirewood symbiote is a fairly good protection card/etb reuser that happens to go infinite with mirror entity and priest of titania or elvish archdruid or Harabaz Druid or any other card that somehow can tap for 3 or more mana (2 mana and you can get infinitely many etb triggers - in either case you can reduce the mana generation requirement by 1 if your creatures does not die when activating mirror entity for 0 - e.g. because all creatures have boosted toughness)

    Haakon, Stromgald Scourge would be nice but require some backup tutor into gy cards.

    Aura shards would work well against enchantments and artifacts but does not really fit your everything must be about types goal.

    elvish guidance is annother creature type matters accel spell.

    Lets try to look at this combo with PE. Lets say that you have him, his token, PE and 3 other artifacts in play (and no untapped mana - you used that to play PE say). A third of your deck is land and the reminder is artifacts - for ease of calculation, I am ignoring how this changes as we go along. You tap your artifacts, getting 5 mana and activates Urza. 1/3 of the time you hit a land, 2/3 of the time you hit an artifact and untap all. This means that you get to activate him 3 or more times less than half the time (2/3 * 2/3 = 4/9 to be precise). I am not impressed with those odds. Yes, if you get 3 or more the probability to fail gets quite small, but I would expect the probability to end up just below 1/3 to go infinite, which is not that great.

    That looks nice, I cant see much to suggest. The only card I could think of that seemed great would be Mobilized District, as a free 3/3 for much of the game. Also, future sight, because I imagine a bit more draw would be nice. On the other hand, I guess revealing the cards as you draw them is worse in a flash based deck. That said, it ugin the enfebble (when you get him) and top would be a nice little combo.

    I like innocent blood more really, but I might be valuing mana efficency too highly for this deck (i.e. you might be able to afford it manawise). Still, 4/2 is not great stats, since it dies to utility creatures on offense (and I think it is not too important on defense, but I guess it is a question of trying the deck).

    Is the deck for multiplayer or duels btw? It may be worth running some 1 power deathtouch creatures as rattlesnakes in multiplayer.

    I would likely cut a few random sac outlets, e.g. still Gnawing zombie, since you got 4 other sac outlets with 1 power (and a few more that could work that way if you saced them in response to their ability) and maybe Gutless Ghoul, just because it cost 1 to activate and you figured you did not really need more life gain with the staff. Perhaps also some of the 2/2 for 3 that gives themself +2/+2 just because you have so many - on the other hand, I imagine they are great.

    Btw, you could put -1/-1 counters on your own 2 power creatures to protect them from targeted removal (also rusalka could do that). That does make the Aven better in my eyes, because you can then reuse it.

    I do not really have many ideas for what else to cut.

    Mortuary Mire seems worth it for a etb land. Path of Ancestry might be worth it, even though you only have a few spirits besides your commander. You have relative few etb lands so it should not cost too much tempo.
